I have had surgery nearly four weeks ago now, and it looks improved but still feels lumpy where the stiches have been. How much longer until this actually feels normal?

That depends on the material used in the stiches. The healing process takes several months.

Healing is rapid in the labia. In a few more weeks, it should feel normal.

the tissue in that region is with very dense innervation, so i bielive that the early phase of healing process is over, o.g. the wound clausure. now is the "rehab" period, restore and intensifie the "activities". sounds not so scientific, but it works!

Healing is usually very good at the level of the labia (even when some dehiscence occurs).
Lumpiness can be felt due to suture material but usually disappears within a few weeks from surgery. Once the surgical wounds have fully healed, massaging the labia can be beneficial. Talk to your surgeon about it.

The healing process is longer than other procedures, because we must wait for the stiches to absorb and this take up to 3-4 month,the region is very thin so this an unconfortable, so you just need pacience!

Lumpiness of absorbable sutures may need another month or two to settle down.It would be bast to go back to your surgeon for a follow up, as he knows the type of sutures which have been used.

Most of the actual materials used in the stitches will disappear somewhere between 2 to 6 months. Local swelling tend to remarkably diminish in the first month and at a lower rate during next 6 months. Keep it always clean, take Vitamin C to improve healing!

You only need to be patient, during the first month the swelling will lower down, but the healing process will take up to 6 months to complete. Keep it clean, take vitamin C to improve healing!

the labiaplasty post operative swelling will be at its worst during the first week. labiaplasty swelling will begin to decrease significantly after the first week. it will still be noticeable to you at 1 month, but not as evident to your partner.

Your labial swelling is a normal consequence after the surgery, it will take a bout a week to settle down, you can use cold compresses, an anti-inflammatory pill, and antibiotics to calm down the swelling and pain. Arnica (homeopathic medication) can also speed up healing.

It is normal to have swelling after surgery. Depending upon the time from surgery, the nature of the procedure, the bleeding and the postoperative care, you can develop and perhaps maintain a degree of swelling. It should settle reasonably quick if all the progress is favourable and you are taking the necessary rest.
It is a certain recovery time that cannot be skipped. However, rest, ice-intermitent application, appropriate hygiene, fluid intake can favourably influence this process.

If there is discharge and a bad smell, it means you have an infection, which can be treated by an antiseptic solution, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory pills. Swelling will continue for a while, and will settle down in 4-6 weeks.
